Brown Butter Snowman Cake

Have all the ingredients at room temperature.

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, then cook until the solids separate and settle on the pan bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Continue to cook until the solids brown and are almost burnt, 18 to 20 minutes more. Pour the brown butter into a bowl, leaving the solids in the pan (discard the solids). Let the butter cool at room temperature until firm. The brown butter can be prepared up to 2 days in advance; cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Bring to room temperature before using.

Position a rack in the lower third of an oven and preheat to 325°F. Brush the pan with unsalted vegetable shortening and lightly flour. To ensure easy release and excellent definition of the pattern, flour the pan with Wondra® flour, a fine flour typically used to thicken gravy. Tap out excess flour.

Over a sheet of waxed paper, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine the milk and vanilla. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the flat beater, beat the brown butter on medium speed until creamy and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, stopping the mixer occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the milk mixture and beginning and ending with the flour. Beat each addition just until incorporated, stopping the mixer occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, dividing it evenly between the two halves and spreading a little extra into the head area of the pan. Bake until the center of the cake springs back when touched and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool upright in the pan for 15 minutes.

Tap the pan gently on a work surface to loosen the cake. Set the rack over the top of the cake, invert the pan onto the rack and lift off the pan. Let the cake cool completely, 3 to 4 hours, before assembling and decorating with vanilla buttercream. Serves 12 to 14.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Tempering Chocolate So far I have only used this for keeping dough from certain Thomas Keller recipes warm while kneading, but the best thing about this bowl is that is PERFECTLY tempers chocolate. The hardest part about tempering is getting the temperatures correct, but this bowl makes it easy and perfect every time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from awesome for chocolate, but pricey I have spent the entire weekend with this bowl and dipping chocolate. no water baths, no scorching. It's fantastic. However, it is very difficult to get seated in the mixer correctly, I haven't got it on the first try yet. But the ability to hold temp for 10 hours without scorching/stirring is like a whole new world for dipping. It even has a program to temper chocolate if you're making your own candy molds. I don't know if it's worth the price, however. It's a heavy price tag unless you make a lot of dough, literally and figuratively. The controls are not intuitive, you'll need to read the manual through a few times before you really get the hang of it. But if it holds up, I'd buy it again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't hold very much This heated bowl is a great idea, but it doesn't hold very much. When I go through the trouble of making bread, I bake quite a bit at once. The Precise Heat Mixing Bowl will accommodate MAYBE two loaves. I do appreciate the extra proofing power with the heat and the convenience of not having to swap out the bowl to a warm place. Suggestion to KitchenAid: provide a silicone bowl cover with a slit to accommodate the dough hook. Would be nice not to have to sling a towel over the machine to cover the dough during proof.
